New Zealand: Wellington Botanic Garden Visit

The Bee Keeper by Alison Clouster

Artist (and beekeeper) Alison Clouster created this piece from a Eucalyptus tree that had come down in a big wind. The piece welcomes visitors at the Wellington Botanic Garden in New Zealand.

While the snow is blowing back in Easton, I have the delightful pleasure of visiting New Zealand this winter.  Actually, it’s summer in New Zealand, all the better for a visit to the Wellington Botanic Garden.  Love this sculpture by Alison Clouster.  The subject is depicted in her beekeeper’s suit, and she’s looking out through the mask, where a bee has come to rest.
